Van Long Lagoon

Located in Ninh Binh Province’s Gia Vien District, some 80km from Ha Noi, the 3,500 ha Van Long Lagoon is considered the biggest wetland nature reserve site in the northern delta and home to thousands of rare fauna and flora species, many of them on the brink of extinction. Travellers will be impressed with the imposing cliffs and mountains and vast lakes of Ninh Binh. 

Bamboo basket boat tours can be taken in a tranquil atmosphere with the familiar sounds of nature in the early morning or late afternoon, where tourists can view flocks of storks returning to their nests at sunset.

Although it opened for tourism in 1998, Van Long is still as untouched as ever and is popular with local and foreign travellers, especially international filmmakers.
